I read in a Chinese historical novel entitled: Romance of the Three Kingdoms, author Luo Guanzhong  explained a rather interesting strategy called "Empty Fort Strategy," a use of reverse psychology to deceive the enemy. The novel goes on to indicate that when 150,000 troops from the Wei army arrived in a rival kingdom, which only had some 2500 troops, they found the city gate wide open and the leader of this army calmly playing the zither with two children beside him. Of course the Wei general was mystified and believing it to be an ambush, ordered a full retreat.

Are you facing a formidable foe today? The Lord has said, "Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for Me?"
